The annual Park Point Art Fair took over the point Saturday and Sunday.
What started as a neighborhood gathering 43 years ago is now a two-day event featuring 115 artists from Duluth and the upper Midwest. Close to 10,000 people attend every year.
It isn't just an art show, though. The event also features live music, food and a make-and-take art station.
"It just is a really good thing for our local artists," said Carla Tamburro, the event coordinator. "I'd say about 90 percent of our artists are from Minnesota and Wisconsin, so this is a way for them to connect with their customers and really just meet with them one on one."
